AI Use Case

Predict potential adverse effects when drugs taken are combined

Combining medications can produce negative side effects - and potentially mitigate the positive impact. Issues for this include limited overlap case studies, decentralised information and unclear cause and effect. Using AI on appropriate data sets can uncover previously unnoticed correlations. Note that 11% of the US population claim to have used at least 5 medications in a given 30-day period.
